Truck Accidents That Occur In Lake County, Illinois

Truck accidents is a subject that is discussed on the “Lake County Truck Accidents” page.  This page discusses various Lake County truck accident statistics, and discusses various aspects of truck accidents, including the causes of truck accidents.

There are many reasons as to why trucks are vulnerable to being in accidents.  Among these reasons is that due to their weight, trucks take longer to slow or stop.  As well, this weight makes vehicle handling challenging, especially under adverse conditions.

As well, due to the potential for shifting weight and other factors, trucks are susceptible to rolling over, either before or after a collision.

One such Lake County semi truck rollover accident happened on October 16, 2018 on I-94 near IL-120 which is in the Gurnee area.   Details on this accident appear limited at this time; the reason for the rollover does not appear to be publicly disclosed at this time.

As seen in the accident scene photo seen in the October 16, 2018 wgntv.com article titled “Semi truck crash closes southbound lanes on I-94 near IL-120,” the truck completely rolled over.  This crash was particularly concerning as the truck’s cargo was said to be some type of corrosive material that was considered to be hazardous.

I-94 was closed and partially closed, which caused traffic disruptions for hours.

Additional details regarding Lake County truck accidents can be seen in the sources mentioned above.
